Pictures from the Cancer Battlefield, Part 8: Happy Hearts Day!

Mom with some of her Valentine's Day gifts.


Happy Valentine's Day to you and everyone you love!  Mom, Mr. C, and I had a pretty good day at the CTCA.  They made all the patients heart-shaped sugar cookies like this:


And each patient got a rose (SILK ONLY for those in stem cell like mom) too.  It was really sweet the way they remembered this special day; which often gets over-looked in the midst of battling cancer.  So far, I have to say that they've done a wonderful job of trying really hard to make each holiday we've had here special (Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years); I really appreciate it, and I know all the patients and caregivers do too.

Mr. C and I got mom a HUGE balloon and a pink sock monkey (he's soooo cute!).  Dad got mom a beautiful Pandora bracelet with "Psalm 118:17" on it along with a "commitment" bead - lots of wonderful meaning there!

As for Mr. C and I, we only exchanged cards; but it was enough for us.  Honestly, he makes every day feel like Valentine's Day for me.  He's always showing me how much he loves me by his actions, and he takes such good care of me...I'm a very blessed girl!

I hope you and your loved ones had a very HAPPY hearts day full of love and laughter!

Blessings,
